My faithful travel companion, a Bose SoundLink Mini 2, seems to have reached the end of life. The unit is no longer charging – for whatever reason. I am a bit puzzled, since the death was somewhat sudden…
Anyway, we will be travelling in a couple of weeks – so a replacement is needed. I could buy another SoundLink Mini 2, but that seems a bit boring.
Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound A1 (2nd Generation) looks attractive, but how does it sound? Also, it’s a bit more expensive – is it worth it? Or maybe one of those wireless JBL speakers? They seem popular.
I wonder what members of this esteemed community are using when away from home. Any recommendations for a wireless bluetooth speaker for travel?
Not a big fan of Bose stuff for the most part but the Soundlink is a a cracking product. It’s gonna be tough to beat if you need the battery power. I’ve had one for years that’s now handed off to my eldest and it’s still trucking along and sounding great. I’d prefer if you could charge of a USB brick but otherwise it does all everything a portable speaker should perfectly
1 for Dali Katch. Mine is gen 1 - good battery life, sound and portable, bluetooth or cable - easily fits in a backpack for travel, similar size to a paperback although heavier; easy listening for hours when away.
